The soft tissue service deals with a range of patients requiring cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, respiratory, urogenital and reconstructive surgery. In addition, minimally invasive laparoscopic or endoscopic surgery, laser and oncologic (cancer) surgical procedures are available. The soft tissue service works closely with other specialist departments, including diagnostic imaging, medical oncology, and internal medicine to provide an integrated approach and the best possible outcome for your pet.
Pre-operative diagnostics available include digital radiology, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 24-hour care is available in the intensive care unit for pets that require it. Emergencies are seen at all times. Generally, patients will be referred from your regular veterinarian, who we liaise closely with throughout your pet’s treatment period and follow up.
The soft tissue service includes board-certified surgical specialists, as well as residents (specialists-in-training), interns, and senior veterinary students. We aim to provide the highest level of care for your pet, while keeping you updated and informed at all times.
